Lakehead University Launches Resource and Environmental Economics


THUNDER BAY – Lakehead University has added another degree program to its already extensive roster.  The Honours Bachelor of Science in Resource and Environmental Economics is a unique program in Canada, and Lakehead faculty members are confident it will give students a leading edge in their careers – particularly in the area of policy analysis in the resource and environmental sectors.

Offering courses commencing fall 2010, the program combines the analytical content of economic analysis with the scientific literacy and knowledge of natural resources, science, and the environment.

Dr. Andrew Dean, Dean of Lakehead’s Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies, notes the unique learning elements this new program provides students, and its applicability to changing times.  “Students will benefit from a combination of the academic intensity of an economics degree and the scientific depth and breadth of an environmental science degree – a marriage of science and social science.”  Dr. Dean adds the new degree covers matters at the forefront of today’s ever-changing society, and is well placed to generate the expertise and value-added human capital needed to drive the economy during these times of challenging economic transition.
